This is a beautiful love story because, before now the bride didn’t believe in finding love online. But, life has shown her to never say never, because she (Susan) met the love of her life (Obie) in September 2018 on Instagram. Their wedding, hash tagged the #ObiesGarland wedding was an all so colourful affair. As the Yoruba princess got wedded her Igbo prince, popping the beauty of both cultures into play! From the pop of colour to the beautiful display of cultural heritage.
Sharing her love story with Bellanaija, Susan says; I met the love of my life through Instagram in September 2018. A few years ago, I went for a TED talk. I remember the speaker sharing a story on how he met his wife. Guess where? Facebook. She messaged him, they went on a date, and a year later they were married. I remember scoffing at that, who on earth meets people online? No way. Not for me, I was old-fashioned. I preferred the classy way of things; perhaps my dream guy would bump into me at the grocery store — maybe we would reach for the same chocolate-filled but healthy snack. Or, perhaps we would meet at a book store or cafe, my ultimate dream come true.
I would be sitting very elegantly on a chair; my hair would be perfect. I’d look like the most graceful lady on the planet, as I read through “The Great Gatsby.” Or some other classy novel I’d usually fall asleep to every night with a bottle of wine in hand.
Our spirits connected so strong and deep inside, I felt like we have known each other for so many years. The chemistry was close to perfection. I knew this was the man I have been praying for all my life. We kept seeing each other as friends until November 2019 – we decided to start dating officially.
In November 2020 he proposed to me and in March we got married. I feel so blessed and I can’t stop thanking God for blessing me with a perfect home.
